The Encore Career Handbook


Wondering how to find your next career?  The Encore Career Handbook shows you how. According to author Marci Alboher, a former New York Times columnist and Encore.org VP, "Nine million people ages 44 to 70 have embarked on careers that are personally meaningful and benefit society. Another 31 million are interested in finding their own encores." You are not alone!

Called an "invaluable resource" by the Associated Press, Alboher's comprehensive guide mixes stories of encore trailblazers with nuts-and-bolts advice (including an interview with this Dr. Laura :))

For-profit Revenue & Recruitment Tactics Questioned


Kudos to Alex Friedrich and crew from Minnesota Public Radio!  This well-researched report lays out the issues raised by recent practices at many (not all) for-profit colleges.  Hear from former recruiters, students and deans who have joined in a whistle-blower suit to expose practices they believe harm rather than help students who are just trying to get ahead.
